Get Your Head Above Water With These 5 Self-Help Singing Tips
Do you feel like you're blundering your way through worship every Sunday?
Sort of hoping that no one will notice you can't really sing the song in that key?
Holding the mic that little bit further away because you don't want anyone to hear your voice fall apart on THAT high note...again?!
Or maybe you have to work it out as you go along because no one there is gonna show you how to do it!
You are not alone!
âThere's a staggering amount of worship leaders who are doing exactly the same thing as you.
Every Sunday. Every Rehearsal. Every week
Far-fetched? Let's quickly put a figure on what that amount could look like
âAnd by singers i mean:
And, don't forget, singers make up about half the band!
Ok, my method is not entirely scientific. But, the point I'm making is you aren't alone when it comes to struggling with your vocals. So don't beat yourself up.
Stop hiding, there's hope!
It's easy to become overwhelmed if you don't know what is happening with your voice.
Why are you Straining?
Why are you Cracking?
Why are you Coughing?
Why is your throat tickling?
Why can't you sing higher?
Why do you keep running out of breath?
Why can't you sing louder, stronger?
Why do you keep losing your voice?
Why can't you find the pitch?
It just goes on and on.
Eventually, you begin to hold back your voice, hiding behind other singers. Not singing out loud. Questioning your ability and starting to lose confidence. I know this because I've seen it happen and heard the many stories.
But the good news is, there is hope!
Here are a few simple self-help techniques you can do to get your singing back on track straightaway. Try them at home.
